Tuesday’s Children, a nonprofit organization founded in the wake of Tuesday, September 11,2001, is proud to announce a generous $200,000 grant from the newly formed Mother Cabrini Health Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the health and well-being of vulnerable New Yorkers.
While the organization continues to serve the 9/11 community, Tuesday’s Children has since expanded their mission to provide these same proven programs and resilience-building services to post-9/11 Military Families of the Fallen. This grant will allow Tuesday’s Children to provide vital Youth Mentoring and Career Resource Center programming to our nation’s military families.
By supporting Tuesday’s Children through this grant, the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation is ensuring that Gold Star children, those who have lost a parent or sibling in military service, achieve personal and professional success with the guidance of adult role models. Through mentors who act as confidants as a shoulder to lean on, and through various career workshops, networking events and 1:1 career guidance, Mother Cabrini is allowing Military Families of the Fallen to excel in all facets of life. Programming will be primarily New York-based and will also benefit military families across the country through digital platforms.
“With the growth of Tuesday’s Children, and our expansion to serve Military Families of the Fallen, came a greater need for assistance,” said Terry Sears, Executive Director of Tuesday’s Children. “The Mother Cabrini Health Foundation makes it possible for Tuesday’s Children to provide opportunities to military families and children who have lost a service member.”
“We are honored to support such a wide range of organizations doing critically important work to improve the health and well-being of New York’s most vulnerable communities,” said Alfred F. Kelly, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of Visa and Chair of the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation Board.
